Someone recently asked what kind of lawyers I hoped to recruit. I believe the person wanted to know what practice areas, what locations, whether I wanted to recruit associates or partners.

I answered that I want to recruit lawyers who are hungry and dreaming big dreams about what they can become.

A few years ago Sherman Smith posted a blog: You Got To Be Hungry!!!. He began the post with three great questions:

  1. How HUNGRY are you in order for you to have longevity in your business?
  2. What are you willing to give up in order to achieve success?
  3. Are you unsatisfied with how things are and want to make a change for the better?

How hungry are you to become a successful lawyer with clients who appreciate your help?

If you are really hungry to learn, I can assure you from experience that nothing is more fun professionally than figuring out how you can be a more valuable lawyer and better serve your clients.
